When I was 9 years old, I asked for an amethyst necklace for Christmas. (I still believed in Santa) My older sister got jealous so she told me that gold was colored the way it was because people peed on silver. I never wore the necklace again and still have an aversion to yellow gold.
That blankets had some magic quality that made it so you could become warm and stay that way
When I was a child I used to believe that, if I jumped off a high enough ledge, a paper bag could act like a parachute. Countless times i would jump off the couch in my old house and try to make the plastic bag catch the wind. I was too afraid to jump off the stairs but i truly believed it would work. I know now that a paper bag couldn't possible support the weight of a human being much less an adult.
When I was little, whenever I put a video in the VCR, I pulled my hand back really fast because I thought my fingers would get sucked in the VCR along with the video.
I used to believe that if I opened the dishwasher while it was running, a tsunami of hot water and suds would come flooding out of it and I'd get washed away.
It wasn't until I was 24 that I finally opened it mid way through a cycle and the water just stops and not a drop escapes. What a let down that was!
I believed you ran the vacuum to cut the carpet and used the lawn mower to smooth out the grass.
I used to believe that when people moved, they just switched houses and all the stuff in the new house was now their stuff.
I used to believe that elderly persons, especially the rich, never go to the gents or to the ladies. I was surprised the first day I discovered my Mum going to the Ladies (I mean going to ease herself).
My dad said that when the light stopped working in the fridge ......the little man inside had decided too turn off his light and go on a holiday and he will be back in a few day .... Then when you open the door and the light was back on the little man had come back home xooxxo
When I was younger, I used to believe little people lived in my air vents, so I would sit in front of the vents looking for them.
I used to think that when you moved, you SWITCHED houses with the person who moved out.
I used to believe that water-heaters were radioactive because my parents obtained a "Radiation Hazard" sticker, and placed it on our water-heater. This stayed with me until about age 11
I use to believe that all the homes were taken by the road side because every where we move it was a house down a long path.
When I was little, we had an answering machine which was supposed to tell the time someone called before you hear the message. This didn't actually work, I guess the machine was broken, because before every message it would always say the same time: “Sunday, 12AM”.
I kept wondering why people always called us at the same exact time every week.
My mom always told us if we sang at the dinner table, we would go to bed crying. At the age of 16 I finally scraped up the courage to ask her why. She said, "Because if you sing at the table, I will beat your butt!"
when I was 5, after watching Beauty and the Beast, I was convince that when a teapot would produce smoke, it was simply because it was mad!
I believed this until I was 7.
I used to believe that the only way you could obtain a pool table was by winning it on The Price is Right. Therefore, I told all of my friends my parents were on the show since we owned a pool table.
When I was little, my older brothers told me that if I looked at the microwave while it was running, it would burn my eyes. I didn't watch my food while it was in the microwave until I was 10.
I used to believe that you need special access to adjust the thermostat in the house, or the house would explode.
when i was little my older sister told me that if you open your eyes in the dark you would immediately go blind. for the longest time when we played hide and seek i would only hide in light places (horrible hide and seek strategy) and when i finally worked up the courage i would hide in dark places but keep my eyes squeezed shut really tight until she found me. i didnt open my eyes in the dark until i was about 13
